. >> reporter: as "the washington post" wrote on election day 2005, the president's advisers last week opted to rearrange yesterday's return, to include a stop in the virginia capital in the hope of helping kilgore pull out a victory. it would offer a well-timed vindication of bush's clout. if kilgore wins, the president's political heart keeps beating. >> ladies and gentlemen, theth president of the united states, george w. bush. >> i appreciate you coming out here to the airport. we were just flying in from latin america. when you find a man who's got this kind of character, it makes sense to stop short of the destination and come in and say to the people in this state, put him in office and he'll be proud of the job he'll do for you. >> but in the end, kilgore was trounced. >> this showed that the president's policies in red states are drawing extreme concern. >> republicans eyeing next year's midterm elections are nervous. unlike 2002, when the president was a top draw for congressional candidates, now mr. bush's troubles have left republicans looking for distance. >> reporter: and repub
" and in the history books. >>> and training day, nerdland style. but first, yes, virginia, there is an election. >>> good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. if i asked you what day is november 5th and you answered, duh, melissa, it's tuesday, instead of, enthusiastically offering the alternate correct answer, it's election day in america! well, you're in good company. because it's election day 2013, an odd number, which makes this an off year election. and well, to be honest, we tend not to get too excited about off year elections if voter turnout is any indication. in fact, it's not uncommon for voter turnout percentages in some off year state and local elections to be in the single digits. and that's among people who live in the jurisdictions that will be directly impacted by the outcomes of those elections. given the level of disinterest among people who actually have to live with the consequences of off year elections, finding a reason to care about the electoral politics of a state where you don't live is probably asking a lot. but here's why you might want to start paying attention. becau
two states pick new governors or perhaps re-elect an old one, some numbers you should know about who's showing up in the garden state and why both sides are afraid of folks not showing up in the old dominion. >>> also today, a decade ago when medicare part d was in the hot seat on health care. some folks are trying to compare it to the current rocky rollout. how much of the reception and the objections are actually similar to today's talk? good morning from washington. it's tuesday, october 29th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. to my "first reads" of the morning. >>> for more than thee years it was a key component of the president's sales pitch to the public, a promise he made repeatedly while selling the health care law. >> if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. these folks need to stop scaring everybody. if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. nobody's going to force you to leave your health care plan. if you like your doctor, you keep seeing your doctor. i don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your h
saturday morning in november, we are feeling the excitement. we are counting down to election day 2013. polls will be opening less than 72 hours from right now. we are also learning a whole lot more of what happened behind the scenes during the last presidential election. new juicy details on the campaign change in the campaign. one potential contender is in hot water this week for plagerism. what exactly did rand paul say? where was it said before? most importantly, will there be long-term fallout for rand paul going forward? today on up against the clock, very exciting, we inaugurate the legends division. our first congressional slate of contestants. stick around for that. first, this weekend marked one full month since the launch of the obama care website october 1st. >> that rollout we can safely say has been an absolute disaster for the obama administration both in terms of image and impact, all for the very simple reason the website has not worked. the driving principle behind the site is to acquaint uninsured americans with the various health insurance plans available to them to
to egypt today. detroit and new york electing mayors. voters in new jersey and new york will be electing a new governor. morning and we are going to begin with a new gallup poll, asking you about the state of your life and your thoughts about the country in general. to you feel more optimistic about where you are going? do you have the opportunities to get ahead? we are asking the yes and -- asking a yes and no question. the number is -- you can also send us an e-mail, send us a tweet, or join us on facebook.com. this is what the question looks like on our twitter page. do you think there is an opportunity to get ahead in america i? , ifd on the new gallup poll you want to check it out it is online at gallup.com. opportunitynty of to get ahead here in america. the survey was released over the last couple of days. while the u.s. has historically prided itself on an open ended mobility, celebrating rags to riches stories, rising income inequality and a normally -- and abnormally high unemployment rate can call the question just how accurate this cherished belief is. politicians have focuse
when it comes to election day. > reporter: when it comes to political star power, it doesn't get much bigger than former president bill clinton. >> he's so good on the stump i don't think he needs me anymore. >> reporter: terry mcauliffe stood side by side with clinton. >> ken cuccinelli says this election is showing that conservatism isn't dead. well, i say this election is about creating jobs. >> he is a very, very good man, and he will be a wildly popular governor. >> reporter: clinton was selling the crowd on why mcauliffe should be virginia's next governor. the two are old friends so the endorsement is not a surprise but an important one to supporters here. >> i think he's going to play a very vital role in terry's election. >> reporter: while clinton made it clear he feels mcauliffe has the qualifications to be a great governor, he told the crowd getting to the governor's mansion means getting out the vote. >> those who love virginia and want it to come together and move forward has got to care as much about this election as you did the election in 2012. that is what is at issue
issue the republican party formally recommended to its elected official members that they do something about after the mitt romney presidential loss last year. so, congressman tom cole was asked by russell berman of "the hill" newspaper in d.c. if there might possibly be time to give immigration a vote in the house between now and the end of the year, since it already passed the senate and, frankly, the house doesn't seem all that busy. here was his response. >> but, you know, immigration is a divisive and difficult issue itself. the idea that congress can -- look, we haven't -- we're not sure we can chew gum, let alone walk and chew gum, so let's just chew gum for a while." >> we don't know, we can walk and chew gum, let alone walk -- you know, can we just chew gum for a while? congressman raul labrador of idaho had been very involved in the discussions about immigration on the republican side. he now tells the "associated press", "i don't think there is going to be sufficient time for us to discuss immigration." congressman mario diaz-balart, also a leading voice for republicans on t
before the election, mitt romney was in the great state of virginia telling voters he was going to win. >> thanks so much, you guys. virginia is the best. >> virginia is the best. and it's also the state barack obama won. one year later after a gop autopsy and a vow to rebrand, they haven't learned anything. any moment dozens of senate republicans are expected to vote against a gay rights law that would ban discrimination against gay and lesbian employees in the workplace. that's 39 republicans who didn't get the memo. why? because they haven't learned anything. what about women's rights? republican senator lindsey graham is now launching a new fight against a woman's right to choose. calling for a 20-week abortion ban. >> i've been a pro-life member of congress since day one. i'm proud to lead this charge. >> todd akin was once proud to lead this charge. how'd that work out? again, they haven't learned anything. and this extreme ideology is particularly bad. look at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relation
tonight. six days out from the election day in virginia. the governor's race is coming down really to the wire. depending on the poll that you're looking at. the race could be tighter than expected. a roanoke college poll hasterry mccoloradoive with a lead over ken cuccinelli. quinnipiac university finds mcallive with a smaller lead over the attorney general. no matter which poll you're looking at, this is so clear. social issues matter. and women could make the difference in this election. and, of course, turnout. now, according to quinnipiac, female voters in virginia backed mcallive over cuccinelli. the "washington post" finds the margin bigger with kuch necessarily trailing by what, 24 points among whelm.cuccinelli trailing by what, 24 points among whelm. this could be the reason. cuccinelli was one of three attorneys general who did not join a bipartisan push for reauthorization of the violence against women act. also cuccinelli was the first attorney general to sue the federal government over obama care, which expands access for women health care. he voted against a senate bi
for watching "the ed show" tonight. election day is four days away and all eyes are on virginia's gubernatorial race. on sunday, president obama will join democratic candidate terry mcauliffe for a rally in arlington, virginia. as we head into the final stretch, the polls find mcauliffe ahead of republican challenger, ken cuccinelli. roanoke college finds mcauliffe with as much of a 15-point lead but quinnipiac poll has him leading by four points. in an e-mail sent to supporters thursday, mcauliffe made it very clear, don't get comfortable and don't sit this one out. mcauliffe wrote to his supporters, in off year elections like this when tea party voters turn out more reliably than democrats. for 45 years, the political party that controls the white house has lost our governor's race the next year. in 2009, fewer than 40% of virginia voters cast a ballot for governor, despite the fact that nearly 70% voted in the presidential election the year before. there's a lot at stake in the state of virginia, no question about it. ken cuccinelli has spent his entire career as an elected official, trying
of the race. >> this election will say a lot about virginia's future and about the country's future. >> two states, two races, what virginia and new jersey tell us about the path the parties are taking. plus -- >> i think government is inherently ingltep tchlinept. >> obama care is failing and will fail. >> they need to call a time-out. >> the gop hammering the president and his party over health care. will the calls for roll back make any progress? >> i think we have to go back to the fundamental notion of stop and frisk as a valid police tactic when gun constitutionally. >> and what will this week's election mean for that controversial tactic. >>> we begin on the campaign trail. president obama just wrapping up a speech in virginia in support of mcauliffe. and over in new jersey, chris christie is barn storming the state in these final 48 hours before election day. kelly o'donnell is on the trail with governor christie and he tells her he's less concerned about winning than he is by how much. >> no republican in this state has gotten 50% plus one since george bush. so we're going for 50 p
expressions of that will be elections next year. >> warner: u.s. troops left iraq for good at the end of 2011, though it continued some military sales and development aid. now maliki wants a lot more military hardware, including apache helicopters and fighter jets, and stepped-up counter- terrorism and intelligence assistance. but after the meeting, maliki sought to respond to the president's urging that he be more politically inclusive at home. >> ( translated ): what we want is for iraq and the region to be able to work together. and we are working in iraq and mobilizing our people to fight al qaida. the democractic experience in iraq is nascent and fragile, but it was born very strong.; we democracy needs to be strong because it alone will allow us to fight terrorism. >> warner: the need is urgent: since the spring, iraq has seen the worst bloodletting in more than five years, mostly directed against shia civilians. and united nations report today issued eye-popping figures for october-- nearly 1,000 more iraqis killed, many at mass gatherings like weddings, funerals and schools. the toll
mitt romney in the 2012 election. now the president invokes the name of his defeated gop rival to defend health care reform. in just a moment, governor romney joins me for an exclusive interview. and president obama's approval rating is at an all-time low. obamacare is at a rough start. more u.s. spy revelations have rocked even our closest allies. and did the president consider replacing vice president joe biden with then-secretary of state hillary clinton? that's according to a bombshell in a new book "double down, game changing 2012." bob woodward, katty kay, david axelrod, bill kristol. i'm david gregory in washington. >>> and good sunday morning. the killing of a tsa agent at los angeles international airport is raising questions about the motives of the 23-year-old suspect, and also airport security. do tsa agents need to be armed? our justice correspondent pete williams will be here in a little while to give us an update and fresh report on all of that. but first, the obama care debate. the healthcare.gov was actually offline for repairs over the weekend. they said satur
. silence. are you in good hands? >>> the most consequential and hotly contested election this year will probably be in virginia one week from today. ken cuccinelli versus terry mcauliffe. even people who have voted republican forever say they are not going to vote for ken cuccinelli. who knows, miracles do happen in politics, but ken cuccinelli appears to need one. e.w. jackson trails by more than ken cuccenlli does. so the governor's race looks like a democratic blowout. that means the most hotly contested election might be the attorney general's race in virginia. in that attorney general race, it's republican state senator mark obenshane who's running against democratic state senator mark herring. and right now, they appear to be very close. the senate democrats lead 49-46. which means the race is pretty close to predict with any confidence. and that has caused republicans to see mark obenshane -- now mark obenshane, if he is elected will be famous for that. the last thing he is famous for, though, was what he did in 2009 as a virginia state senator. he introduced a bill that yea
is election eve, as such goes, tomorrow's elections are being styled as a referendum on obamacare. and administration that has been dishonest with americans, the biggest problem for the president, is that millions of americans are learning first hand. dimensions of that dishonesty, i am lou dobbs. >> good evening we're just hours away tonight from polls opening across the country. residents of some of the nation's big of cities are set to choose their next may irs, es or -- mayors and gubernatorial's elections in a few states. bill deblasio could be first registered democrat to be elected new york city mayor in two decades, union cash, floods boston mayor race as pro labor martin walsh trying to fend off john conley, a diagramcrat pushe -- democrat pushed by republicans for his small government views, mayoral race coming down to the wire in detroit. chris christie looking to cruise to reelect in new jersey. in virginia. republican candidates, cuch nelly closing the gap on his democratic opponent, and terry mcauliffe. with a number of other polls tightening, quoting the race, withi
. did the white house okay the surveillance of our allies? all that and our election preview from new jersey to virginia to colorado. a look at what's on the ballot this tuesday. >>> i'm as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of health care.gov. so let me say directly to these americans, you deserve better, i apologize. >> welcome to "the journal editorial report." an apology from health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius who acknowledged the rollout of the affordable care act was, in fact, a debacle. despite the website woes and growing outrage over millions of dropped policies, president obama says it's full steam ahead. >> yes, this is hard. because the health care system's a big system. and it's complicated. and if it was hard doing it just in one state, it's harder to do it in all 50 states. we are just going to keep working at it. we're going to grind it up. >> joining the panel this week, "wall street journal" assistant editorial panel editor james freeman. editorial board member joe raggio and economics writer joe moore. what have we learned from
live and learn. so do you think as we stand right now with the fact that the president was re-elected on obama care and it passed both houses and also vetted through the supreme court, do you believe that all americans deserve access to affordable health care? >> absolutely every american should have access to affordable health care. every american should be able to provide that for their families. but you know when we're comparing medicare part d to this massive takeover of government health care, i'm sorry, it just doesn't work. medicare part d is just one tiny part of medicare. now, they're calling out bill clinton. when they call out bill clinton, you know there's a problem. so you see how they're trying to do damage control. and i understand that. if i were president obama and i was faced with this huge failure, i would be doing the same thing. >> real quickly, this understand i understand the north carolina chapter of the naacp is going to be holding a rally because of the new voter i.d. laws in your state. we saw last week that a north carolina republican official was fired aft
. >> the way we're going to stop obama care, it's going to come from the american people. >> when we elect me president of the united states, we're going to get rid of obama care. >> memories. we're going to get rid of obama care. how'd that work out? just like it was going to be his waterloo. need more proof the anti-obama crusade is hurting the party? look at the great state of virginia. a test case for far right conservatives. ken cuccinelli, the republican candidate for governor, and since the shutdown he's sinking down 11 points in the polls this summer. but today his big response was to call in tea party senator rand paul who voted for the shutdown. see the pattern? their answer to rejection is to go even farther to the right. how's that for a winning strategy? let's put the fire out with more gas. good luck, republicans. joining me now is congressman john yarmouth, democrat from kentucky, and joan walsh from salon.com. thank you both for being on the show. congressman, after romney lost the election, the gop swore it was rebranding. but now we have ted cruz in iowa continuing with this
? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there is to say it's not hindsight. >> re-election rival and former governor mitt romney and on "meet the press" this weekend where he accused the president of dishonesty and had this warning about the president's second term. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> wait, there's a little bit more, "the washington post" obtaining an internal memo that shows an outside health adviser warning of trouble ahead for the rollout. telling the administration, quote, i do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the president's vision or have the capability to carry it out. >> looking back, people are going to be scratching their heads for years going how did they make this mistake? so how do mistakes like this happen
year since the 2012 presidential election and if this is the annual checkup, it's largely the president's health care law that's going through a major stress test. and right now, the white house is reaching out for support in the face of continuous oh criticism of the law and its rollout. later this evening, the president will speak about the benefits of health care reform at an organizing for action event. and later this week, he'll travel to texas to thank volunteers helping people enroll in the new health care exchanges. the president is keeping up a furious public information push, as dueling headlines leave many consumers still confused over the law and its impact. in the "washington post" for consumers whose health premiums go up, sticker shock leads to anger. in the "new york times" millions eligible for free policies. and i'm sure you can imagine that last story was not the one singled out by losing presidential candidate mitt romney on "meet the press." >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from, and that is that he told people they could keep their
going around plagiarizing, but he runs a pretty loose operation. it's like if you elected rand paul president, you would want the key job, the key other person in his administration wouldn't be chief of staff or secretary or state or vice president. it'd be the person who prevents him from inedadvertently hiring racists and plagiarizers. >> that day had been lifted verbatim from the wikipedia entry for the movie "gatica." let's listen to that. >> from wikipedia. ethan hawke's character, quote, assumes the identity of jarome morrow who had been injured in a car accident leaving him parolized. hit it, senator. >> he assumes the identity of jerome morrow. a world class swimming tar with the genetic profile said to be second to none. but he's been paralyzed from a car accident. >> this is weird. he's reading wikipedia off the teleprompter. >> remember hit this messenger. when his real enemy is the search engine. >> i think i'm being unfairly targeted by a bunch of hacks and haters. i'm not going to put up with people casting aspersions on my ka rkt. >> they're like drone miss ls. tham c
year election, you say? that to bill clinton in virginia. like only he can. it to shaq who is in the airwaves. in new jersey for chris christie. it to ted cruz touring iowa like hoe has nothing to lose. things are getting tense between the u.s. and key european allies over reports that the nsa has been listening to calls and reading e-mail for years. white house said president obama didn't know about it. the deep dive into the relationship between two men known by three letters. w and the vp. the tension that ended their term together gotten better or worse in the last five years? good morning from washington. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. get to my first reads of the morning. with eight days before election day, democrats in virginia are setting sights on their first sweep of statewide offices since 1989 as new jersey governor chris christie goes for a transformational blowout, pulling out all the stops to break maybe even 60%. unheard of for a republican in that state. a string of polls show that terry mcauliffe is several points ahead of his republican riv
of the primary candidate if he decides to run for president versus a general election candidate where we've seen time and time again, the most conservative might be able to win the primary. but when it comes to a national election, that can come up losers. >> the republican party has to decide whether they want someone that pleases the base or who can k win. >> back to shaq, we know it's not christie sees this as a big move as well. >> he's famous and represents a demographic so he sort of signals to voters, this is a different kind of republican. >> it's a great pleasure having you on. still ahead, from the governor's race in new jersey to another big one in virginia where bill clinton is now on the campaign trail. >> this whole election is about which virginia shows up. >> the former president stumping for his long-time friend terry mccalliffe, the two hats on display in virginia. as we discuss, in new jersey. and chris brown in court today. he's now charged with felony assault for allegedly breaking a man's nose outside of a washington, d.c. hotel. could this be a violation of his probation
's an off/off year. it is november. and there are a bunch of elections on tuesday, next week, november 5th, just four days from now. and the nice thing about that in an off/off year if you're a politics dork because we don't have all that many elections happening in a year like this, the number of races that are going on that are interesting and potentially politically important is small enough that it's possible to keep them all in your head at once. you don't even need notes. new jersey has the republicans race on tuesday, chris christie versus barbara buono. even though this week he admitted publicly he will not promise to actually serve out his term as governor. so his closing argument now is effectively, elect me even though i don't totally want the job and i can't say i won't quit half way through. still, though, the governor was up by 33 points in the most recent poll. the one interesting thing to watch in new jersey is if that big margin holds on election day, what are the down ballot consequences be of that in the state? new jersey democrats have an eight-seat majority in the sena
